Let me start off, My name is ottoyu34. You can find me in few other forums with the same name. Computers being one of my biggest hobbies. I'm into overclocking (for 24/7),watercooling,system building,gaming,folding,etc.
Pretty new to gaming PC's as I've always had a console..... definately got the bug now. I have a ROG strix gl10cs. Well impressed. I'm wondering if anybody could point me in the right direction to buy a tempered glass side panel, preferably in the UK. I've looked every with no luck, even tried ASUS directly. Many thanks to all in advance
I'm a long time computer geek... built my first system in 1992. The specs on that system, which was a reasonably powerful system at the time, included an Intel 386-SX processor, 4MB of RAM, a 10MB hard drive, a blazing-fast 56K modem and Windows 3.0 running on a copy of DR DOS from Digital Research. Shortly thereafter, I took a job with MediaVision, and installed a Pro Audio Spectrum 8-bit ISA audio card and a dual speed CD-ROM connected to the PAS's CD-ROM interface. I became an expert in editing PIF's ("Program Information Files" for those of you to young to have had the pleasure) and tweaking driver configurations to get things to "sorta work". I was always upgrading hardware and software, particularly focused around gamimg performance, which meant a Pro Audio Spectrum 16 sound card, Multimedia Extensions for Windows 3.0 and eventually Windows 3.1 and Win95 with DirectX.
I cut my teeth in gaming by searching bulletin boards for the latest Beta and sometimes pre-Beta releases of games. I downloaded the Doom beta sometime in late 1993 at about 8:00 one evening. After managing to get it running and stable a few hours later, I played for a few minutes, then checked my watch to realize that it was 6:30am.
Its been a very long time since I did an all nighter with my eyes glued to my monitor. Somewhere along the way, I forgot how much fun and how cathartic it was to leave the real world behind and exercise my demons in the digital space. To quote Bruce Buffer,"It's Time!".
I just built a brand new gaming system based on an ROG Crosshair VIII Impact, Ryzen 93900x CPU, EVGA 2070 Super Hybrid GPU and a few other choice bits and pieces. I'm just about to start building a combination racing/flight sim rig to play Assetto Corsa and MSFS 2020. With any luck, I'll get the system OC'd and dialed in so that I can reliably run 3 QHD monitors at high frame rates for hours on end.
New here and eager to learn about G75VX Model. Was lucky that I was able to pick it from the garbage. I dont really have any idea why the previous owner threw it. It had a 128SSD and 750HDD on it and clean installed it. Its currently running on 750HDD and 12GB RAM. I transferred the 128SSD on the other laptop I found from the garbage. I got 2 laptops for free actually! Had to raise both of them from the dead.. Soooo happy though..
So far it's been great for schoolwork, running VM's and gaming.
I joined the forums to learn about undervolting as the i7-9750H gets quite hot under load. I can get an avg. FPS of about 110-120 on low graphics settings (G-sync enabled w/ an external gaming monitor, 1920 x 1080 @ 240 hz). To extend the life of this machine, I believe its going to need some undervolting, and some better thermal paste on the CPU (and GPU) although, GPU seems to do a good job staying cool.
